Miracle Healing in the Christian Faith


Miracle Healing in the Christian Faith

The Bible describes the human person as consisting of both body and soul. According to the New Testament, Christ came to save human souls and raise both bodies to new life. Yet, only 20 to 11% of the gospel accounts of Jesus’ public ministry are devoted to stories of physical healing or exorcisms. The Christian faith is a complex one and it’s important to understand its nuances to fully appreciate it.

Sadly, the vast majority of professed Christians have been so badly influenced by Satan that they don’t know what they believe or what the Bible teaches. Despite having been baptized, many people today don’t practice the Christian faith and no longer feel a connection to Christ or the church. In the late 1800s, an Evangelist named William Booth warned against religion without Christ and regeneration. Moreover, he warned against politics without God and hell without Christ.

The Bible mentions numerous examples of people who have been healed through prayer. These include Paul, Peter, and the Seventy Disciples. The Apostles Paul and Peter were famous for their abilities to heal people. The Church recognizes this right as the origin of the sacrament of anointing the sick. In James 5:13-16, the priest’s faith-filled prayer will save the sick person.

Jesus began his ministry by preaching the Word of God to the people. He soon stopped entering towns and began teaching people. Suddenly, people began to flock to him from every quarter. As time passed, the apostles began to preach the Gospel to the crowd. They had a difficult time explaining Jesus to those who would be listening to their message. It was only then that people started to realize that he was the Messiah. And the world was transformed.
